If you’re planning for retirement and want an estimate of your 1199SEIU pension benefit, remember that you can now get your estimate online. Just log on to “My Account” and from the “My Pension” tab, choose “Request & Review Pension Estimate” from the dropdown menu. You will be able to view all your personal data and update it, if needed. Then click the “Request New Pension Estimate” button, follow the steps shown and you’re done! You’ll receive a pop-up message telling you that your request has been received, and within 48 hours you will be notified by email that your estimate is ready to be viewed on “My Account.”
Six months before you’re ready to retire, call the Pension Department at (646) 473-8666 to make an appointment with a Pension Counselor, who will walk you through the retirement process, help you fill out your application and explain your options. Just be sure to make your appointment at least six months before you want to retire.
